Israeli Palestinian Conflict

The American Jewish Congress is firmly committed to a two-state solution in Israel and works to condemn violence between Israelis and Palestinians. We fully support maintaining open dialogue between Palestinian and Israeli leaders in an effort to secure peace, security, and prosperity for all. However, we do not approve of the hateful rhetoric used by Palestinians to incite violence against Jews and Israelis.

Engaging Leaders

We work with political leaders globally to advance Jewish interests. We also strive to engage with up-and-coming politicians from around the world to expand support for Jewish rights. Our annual International Conference of Mayors welcomes mayors from over 30 nations to Israel to promote and educate the world on the Jewish state.

Fighting BDS

The BDS movement overtly seeks to undermine & ultimately destroy Israel. This movement is a direct assault on Israel’s legitimacy & existence. Leaders in the BDS movement are waging a political, economic, & cultural war against Israel. The BDS movement is a hindrance to any attempts at lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Additionally, the American Jewish Congress works to promote mutual understanding and normalization between Israel and neighboring nations.

Iran

A nuclear Iran is a direct threat to the United States and Israel. The Congress has worked tirelessly to engage elected leaders, and educate them on the importance of preventing a nuclear Iran from becoming a reality. The American Jewish Congress led the way in opposition to the Iran Deal that eventually passed through the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

Antisemitism

Antisemitism has arguably reached new heights in recent years. While Jews have certainly come a long way since the Holocaust, anti-Jewish sentiment is still prevalent across the globe.

As the threat of Islamic extremism spreads across the world and right-wing antisemitic parties gain traction globally, Jews must remain united to fight antisemitism.
